Hi Im sorry to hear that. You can replace the sealed lead acid battery in the main alarm panel to stop the beeping.

Radio Shack used to carry these batteries and may still have one that will work.

Or if you have a Batteries Plus store nearby they will have a replacement battery.

Its easy to change there are two wire terminals where they simply plug onto the batter. Make sure wen you get the new battery, that the red wires goes to the + on the battery and the black wire to the - side or you will damage the main control board for the alarm!

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.
